Room 206.02 Scenography and the Visual Arts During the Second Republic

Room?s details

In the early 1930s, Spanish artists found themselves drawn to all facets of the stage arts, viewing them as an outstanding interdisciplinary meeting point for young creators. With the proclamation of the Second Republic, theatrical works, dance and film were considered the ideal platform for disseminating culture and teaching literacy, aspirations that took concrete form in a series of travelling projects. These initiatives underlined the high degree of social awareness of the artists and intellectuals as well as their determination to conserve Spanish cultural heritage, dignify popular culture and link it to modernity and the avant-garde.
